Ayatollah Mehdi Karrubi will soon launch his own satellite TV channel. The station, to be called Saba, will be based in Dubai.
Karrubi planned to open the channel four years ago after loosing his first presidential bid. Reports at the time indicated that Karrubi was prevented to launch the channel by the country’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei.
Karrubi's relations with Khamenei has gone sour in the aftermath of the recent election fiasco and the nationwide popular uprising that followed. Karrubi has become one of the leading figures of the opposition.
